Newport Landing Cruises
The winter and spring months see the annual gray whale migration. Tens of thousands of gray whales migrate along the Newport Beach coastline during the months of January, February, March, April, & May. During the gray whale migration it is not uncommon to view 5 or more gray whales a cruise making for excellent viewing opportunities. Other varieties of whales including finback whales, humpback whales, and minke whales can also be viewed along with several species of dolphin. The summer and fall months has the giant blue whales migrating into the waters off Newport Beach to feed on krill. Other whales including humpback whales, finback whales, and minke whales are also commonly viewed as well as mega pods of dolphin that can number 1000 or more. Just outside of Newport Bay is the beginning of one of the largest marine protected areas in southern California created to protect this rich ecosystem for future generations. The marine sanctuary covers over 15 miles and provides a haven for all marine creatures including whales and dolphin. The marine reserve stretches along much of the Newport & Laguna Beach coastline and along with being a mecca for whale watching also offers some of the most beautiful coastline in Southern California.
